This restaurant was recommended by a hotel front desk staff. It was very difficult to find and the menu is only in Italian. None of the staff could explain the menu. We should have left but decided to try the experience given the good reviews. It seems to be a great family restaurant but unfortunately, my meal was not edible. I had the risotto.

We were given this restaurant as an alternative to go an eat when we asked where do the locals eat. It wasn't far from the Novotel in Florence and it as reasonably priced. we had local dishes including mushrooms and truffle pasta. My only problem was when we came to pay the mushroom salad which was recommended by the waitress was over double the price of all the other salads and we had no idea its as going to be that expensive. However it was delicious. Lesson learnt to ask for the price before we order. Getting there you will need car or taxi, 4kms from the Novotel and don't be disturbed by the night girls on the main street !

This is one of the biggest restaurant surprises ever. In an industrial estate setting just off of the main Autostrade sits this run down looking 'Nissan' hut. Walk inside and it starts to take on a rural more homely feel, and then get the food which is exceptional!
Always busy so try to book if you can, Fiorentina Bistecca is fantastic as is anything with Tartuf Bianco when in season or the Porcini.
Service is good and all of the staff are very friendly although limited English. Don't miss this place.
